Additionally, rising awareness about the benefits of using NPK fertilizers is also contributing to the growth of this market. On the basis of type, nitrogen accounted for a major share of the global NPK fertilizers (feed-grade and food grade) market in 2017. This segment is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5% during 2018–2030 owing to its high demand from various end users such as dairy products, meat & meat products, bakery products, beverages etc., across different regions worldwide. On account on application wise; dairy product industry dominated with highest revenue share in 2017 which will continue throughout forecast period due increased consumption rate globally followed by Meat&meat product industry .

Global NPK Fertilizers (feed-grade and food-grade) Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

NPK Fertilizers are composed of Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), and Potassium (K) in various ratios. NPK fertilizers are used to improve the growth of plants by providing nutrients that are essential for plant growth. Feed-grade NPK fertilizers are used in animal feed, while food-grade NPK fertilizers are used in food production. The importance of using feed-grade and food-grade NPK fertilizers is to ensure that the plants being grown have the necessary nutrients to be healthy and produce a high yield.


Nitrogen is a macronutrient and an essential element for all living organisms. It is produced in the atmosphere by plants through photosynthesis and absorbed by crops through stomata (mouths) or petioles (petals). The fixation of atmospheric nitrogen into organic compounds is known as the nitrogen cycle.

Nitrogen plays an important role in plant nutrition as it helps to strengthen cell walls, increase resistance against diseases, insects & abiotic stress & improve growth rate.


Phosphorus is a macronutrient, which is essential for the growth of plants. It plays an important role in the photosynthesis process. The deficiency of phosphorus can lead to poor plant growth and yield loss. Phosphorus level in fertilizers should be adequate to meet the requirements for healthy plant growth and development with no further deficiencies at any stage of crop development including early seed germination, growing point & stem formation as well as during silage making.

Application Insights:

The dairy products segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 30% in 2017. The application of fertilizers is directly proportional to the quality and quantity of produce obtained from the land. In turn, this will impact industry growth over the forecast period positively.

Global NPK fertilizers (feed-grade.

Dairy products such as butter, cheese, yogurt are made from milk; thus require a certain amount of nutrients including nitrogen, calcium & phosphorus to manufacture them correctly. As compared to cereals and grains which need comparatively less nitrogen fertilizer owing to their ability to obtain sufficient amounts from soil alone; meat & meat products such as bacon/cured meats etc., require more amount of N fertilizer due to high protein content in them that helps maintain muscle mass during curing process.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest market in 2016 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region has a large number of fertilizer manufacturers, which makes it a key regional market for global NPN fertilizers. China is one of the major markets in Asia Pacific as many Chinese companies have started investing overseas to expand their business. For instance, Sinofert Holdings Limited., a subsidiary of State Power Investment Corporation (SPIC) has invested around USD X million to establish Sinofert II LLC., an N P K fertilizer manufacturing plant in India with an annual capacity equivalent to that of SPIC’s existing facility in Sichuan Province, China.

The demand for NPK fertilizers from Europe and North America is highly diversified owing to high application rates across various crops including cereals & grains; oil seeds & pulses; sugar beet; fruit & vegetables; grasses, flowers & ornamental plants etc.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for food due to population growth
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of using NPK fertilizers
  • Government initiatives and subsidies for promoting the use of NPK fertilizers
  • Growing demand from emerging markets
  • Technological advancements in manufacturing processes
